This year, summer has arrived early in Thórsmörk and the good weather has helped us get ahead with preparations for our main volunteer projects which will start in June.
Our first team of the season joined us for 2 weeks in May and included experienced volunteers from the United Kingdom, USA and Canada. As well as setting up the Langidalur volunteer camp in preparation for the summer, the team focused on GIS data collection, trail surveys and maintenance on several of the main routes.
It has been a really great start… the sun is shining and now we are ready.
Volunteer applications for this season will close on Wednesday. Skype interviews are planned for next week and final placement allocations will be made on 9th February.
Application forms and placement details can be found on our website…
Applications for our 2018 volunteer teams will close next week on January 31st. If you would like to join us this summer, please get in touch.

Johnny Rolt and Ollie Campbell have made a short film about their experiences volunteering with us in Thórsmörk last summer. As well as a taste of life at the volunteer camps, the film visits our projects and worksites in Thórsmörk, Goðaland and along the Laugavegurinn trail. Congratulations to Johnny and Ollie on this amazing work. It’s beautiful!
Spend a few minutes in Thórsmörk with us now…
Placement dates and application forms for our 2018 volunteer programme are now available.
We are putting together an international volunteer team that will join us at our camps in Thórsmörk next summer. We have volunteer placements for two or six weeks and there are longer placements for volunteer team leaders with our Operations team. No previous experience of trail construction is necessary as training will be provided. Participants organise their own travel plans and join us at the meeting point. There is no participation fee.
We will start allocating placements as soon as applications reach us so if you would like to join us in Thórsmörk in 2018, don’t delay!
Applications will be open from December 15th to January 31st.
